Q&A with Ivan Metrikin, CTO and Co-Founder of Globus AI. Part One

Aug 6, 2020

In this interview series we asked the founders of Globus AI some tough questions. And here is what they had to say.

Why did you choose “Globus AI” as the name of the company?

The name Globus AI reflects the way that AI (artificial intelligence) works and is developed. When using AI, you give it data, it learns from this, this then improves the quality of predictions and it becomes smarter, then you feed it more data again and the process repeats. It’s a continuous loop.

Where did the whole business idea come from?

We wanted to find a way to use our knowledge and competencies to improve people’s quality of life and save lives. The business idea itself wasn’t formed from the start, however, we arrived at it through a process of iteration.

What does the business idea mean for you personally?

For me, it’s about helping specific people improve their quality of life - by helping the people we serve to achieve their full potential. That might be a nurse or doctor getting the most relevant jobs, or it could be a patient receiving the best care. Or staffing agencies, giving them a tool that makes their processes more efficient and improves their business.

What were the goals for the first year? Were they achieved?

Our main goal was to convert our vision and mission statement into a specific solution and product that could address a need in the market. Over the year, we went through several iterations and worked with customers in different industries to come to the sustainable business model that we have today. By the end of the first year, we successfully had a clear product idea and a partner to implement it with.

What has changed in the company since the beginning?

The biggest change since the start was our ability to scale beyond our existing customer base - we now have a scalable product that aligns with our vision and mission statement and is needed across the world.
